School leavers invited to free summer school to boost employability

Training provider, Kaplan, is holding a free summer school for school leavers to help improve their employability skills and give them an insight into the world of work in accounting, tax, audit and financial services.

The three day event will take place in 17 different locations across the UK from July to August.

Local employers and industry experts will be on hand, giving the young people advice on writing effective CVs and successfully applying for jobs.

Peter Longmore, Kaplan Centre Manager said: “Year after year, Kaplan’s summer school receives a lot of positive feedback from students and employers alike. We give hundreds of young people not only advice and tips, but a chance to be supported by Kaplan’s recruitment experts in the future and receive Apprenticeship training and employment opportunities.

“Some school leavers still don’t recognise Apprenticeships as a viable route to their career but there are hundreds of Apprenticeships out there, many of them in the professional services and business world. With high levels of unemployment and university fees sky high, Apprenticeships are becoming one of the best ways of achieving employability – and students need to know this.”
